Challenging diagnosis of an unusual solitary pulmonary nodule

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We describe the case of a 64-year-old woman with a solitary pulmonary nodule and a previous breast carcinoma whose diagnosis of histoplasmoma was established only after surgical resection and appropriate stains. It is important not to confuse these two diseases as this will prevent inappropriate medical treatment. Limited surgery is indicated for the treatment of these circumscribed lesions.
